What CAR/BIKE kits have you recently bought 2?

Recommended Posts

Talking of the General, I’ve recently taken delivery of MPC’s version. The Confederate flag is included despite the PC box art omission. However, unless you’re up for a challenge I would steer clear of this one as it’s typical of an old kit, ie. rough as a badger’s nether regions. T’is cheap though.

I'm sure I saw resin wheels of the right style for the General recently, but do you think I can remember where......:shrug:

There’s a fella who runs Fireball models in the States who does correct wheels. I bought some once but you don’t get much change out of 30 quid for a set once they’re sent to the UK

I still like it, I should really get some more ;) 

 

The Revell kit is far superior but this kit still builds up well and looks the part

Looks ‘okay’ to me ;)

 

Looking at it it seems ok though the (UK)near side  may look ever so slightly thinner than the off side ( obviously the other way round in the US)

Is this similar to yours ?

A bit hard to tell but I think yours looks similar to mine, the one on the last photo looks a bit wider (not only because it is closer to the camera) doesn't it? Turning the body upside down and looking from the inside I see the difference too. But as I said it is not a big issue.

Hi to all!

I'm looking forward to build a Tyrrel Ford P34 from Tameo.

At the present time I'm getting back in to the construction after more than 25 years of absence.

Happy building to all!

I done a couple before, and I will share photos too.

Have nice day!

I'm sure I still have an Ertl metal Charger in a cupboard.

I refurbished it over twenty odd years ago as it was a swapmeet buy.

I was at Scampton then, so it just may be Red Arrows red.

If I get time this weekend, I'll see if I have any 'General' wheels in my spares box.

 

Last week I was in Home Bargains to buy some firelighters.

There was a Revell 2014 Mustang looking all lonely on a shelf.

Sigh....

Wife and daughter went to NY recently and I ended up with an AMT LT1 ZR1 corvette and a 69 Olds 442 W-30 that we don't get over here :)

Then my son hunted around and got me the iconic  Tamiya MP4/4 for my birthday, so very lucky and happy :)

Nice.

 

🤔 Maybe we can have a MP4/4 GB next year.

Beemax Quattro Sport at Telford today. Still disappointed that beemax insist in not putting cigarette ad decals in their kits, had to buy a separate decal sheet for the HB logos too!!

It is the AMT Plymouth Belvedere repackaged and moulded in not so great RED plastic. 

I got this one from Wheelspin models for £28 which was the cheapest price I could find. 

 

The good thing about this boxing is it is it has the correct number plates
